Here's where it gets really weird.
As suggested, I put dish soap into the overflow tube. The toilet flushed
OK. Then it started acting up again.
Just for the heck of it, I put dish soap into the bowl. It flushed! This
toilet will not flush properly unless there is dish soap EITHER in the
overflow tube OR in the bowl itself (NOT the water tank)!!!!
